Dessert Recipes Tasty Treats To Sip On

Blackberry Vanilla Cocktail Float

Blackberry-Gin-Cocktail-Float_1

When I was little, one of my very favourite desserts was my dad’s rootbeer float. Though it’s been a while since I’ve indulged in one, to this day that classic dessert still ranks high atop my list. Now that I’m older, I thought I’d give that tasty treat a bit of a grown up twist. Enter: the blackberry vanilla cocktail float. A little homemade blackberry syrup mixed with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream topped with a shot of something sinful? It truly doesn’t get any better.
